Lufthansa’s Substantial Investment in Enhancing Passenger Experience: Reduced Internet Package Rates and Free Messaging
Lufthansa is committing approximately two billion euros to enhance its products and services. This initiative encompasses a range of significant, medium-sized, and smaller projects aimed at elevating the overall travel experience with Lufthansa,” stated Heiko Reitz, Chief Commercial Officer of Lufthansa Airlines.
“One notable example is the introduction of Free Messaging. We are delighted to offer our passengers the ability to stay connected with loved ones or business contacts while soaring above the clouds, at no cost.”
To access this new complimentary service, passengers must log in to FlyNet using a Miles & More service card number or an email address registered with the Lufthansa Group Travel ID. New registrations and logins can also be completed during the flight.
Incoming: 30 New Aircraft
In 2024, the company foresees increasing its capacity to around 95 percent of pre-crisis levels. The target for the Adjusted EBIT margin is at least 8 percent. The Group’s fleet is set to expand by approximately 30 new aircraft based on current delivery schedules.
Favorable access to MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) capacities through Lufthansa Technik, as well as successful efforts in recruiting new flight operations personnel, positions the company well for growth that exceeds industry averages and is profitable.
Efficiency enhancements are expected to lead to reduced unit costs, contingent on the continuous improvement of system-wide operational stability, particularly in the Group’s domestic market of Germany.
Nevertheless, the company remains vigilant regarding geopolitical and macroeconomic risks and retains the flexibility to adapt its plans as needed.
